The primary national curriculum changes and policies This episode of Need to Know explores the coalition government?s policy on the National Curriculum and the decisions to abandon the primary curriculum reforms that were already in the pipeline following the Rose Review, commissioned under the last government.
On Queen’s Speech Day the government re-iterated its commitment to providing more curriculum freedom to teachers as a central area of policy. But just how committed to letting go of what happens in classrooms is the government?
While many details are currently being worked out, Mike reveals what is known about what will fill the gap left by Rose. Could it be the Cambridge Primary Review or will teachers be left to develop their own approach?
Mike also visits Bentworth Primary School to see what head teacher Tony Proud is currently doing to develop the curriculum for his staff and pupils.
